Doing a Double Take

Imagine walking into a dry cleaner or trying to park your car somewhere in downtown Charleston and encountering an employee that happens to be the spitting image of a famous person.

That’s the premise for I GET THAT A LOT, which returns with a new one-hour special on Wednesday night.

Celebrities Paris Hilton, Snoop Dogg, Rachael Ray, Gene Simmons, Julie Chen and Tony Hawk pull pranks on unsuspecting customers who do a double take when they recognize the famous people in unlikely roles.

Working ordinary jobs, these celebrities confuse customers who can’t decide if it’s the actual celebrity or an astonishing look-alike. As these celebrity jesters continue to deny their true identities, various reactions from their customers solicit exasperated and hilarious responses.

Hilton is seen working as a gas station employee. Hip-hop legend Snoop Dogg is spotted working as a parking lot attendant. Customers at a dry cleaner find Ray behind the counter. Simmons poses as a psychic guru. Chen serves up some yogurt. And Hawk, a skateboard sensation, is seen working in a surf shop.

Of the folks on that list, your Insider would think Hawk would be the hardest one to recognize: can you picture his face in your head without doing a Google search?

In any case, the first installment of I GET THAT A LOT appeared as a prime time special on April Fools Day last year. (Hard to believe it was that long ago, we know!)

This all-new episode premieres Wednesday at 8pm on LIVE 5 WCSC.
